Cannondale star shows off some top bike handling skills... and how to jump off a car roof too

Light as today's road bikes may be, it can be a bit of an effort to lift them up onto the roof rack at the end of a ride, so here's Cannondale star Peter Sagan showing how to get one safely stowed without getting out of the saddle.

The video, which should probably come with a 'don't try this at home (or out in the woods)' type warning, is the second in recent months to show one of last year's Tour de France jersey winners showing some expert bike parking skills - remember Bradley Wiggins' perfectly executed bike toss at the Giro del Trentino?

So we're now looking forward to seeing King of the Mountains winner Thomas Voeckler and last year's best young rider, Tejay van Garderen, share their cycle parking secrets...


Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
